Grief in Relief: remembering loss as a call to creativity is an eight-part, in-person program that invites a small circle of women into a series of embodied conversations and creative practices to explore and move grief so we can grow our capacity and confidence to well-tend experiences of loss with ourselves and with others.

Over eight in-person sessions, we will:

  • learn and unlearn about the nature of grief and loss, drawing upon the ways and wisdom of water for guidance and inspiration;
  • explore the ways we carry grief in our bodies– physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually;
  • move grief like a river using expressive arts- creative writing, journaling, music, movement, artmaking and more; and
  • practice truth-telling, deep listening, and offering and receiving reflection.

Upon completing this course, you will be able to say with increased confidence:

  • My relationships with grief and loss are expansive and deep.
  • I acknowledge, honor, and move grief creatively and with ease.
  • I trust in my ability to meet others in their grief and loss experiences in ways that are mutually supportive.
  • I have capacity for joy, vulnerability, connection, and resilience.

If you are ripe for this kind of transformative work for yourself and your community, I do hope you’ll consider stepping in with us.

Please note: All of the experiential activities offered in this program will be guided. No prior experience is necessary and participation is always a choice, not a requirement.
